Steven Beckly

Steven Beckly is a Chinese-Canadian photographic artist. Cultivating a visual language of light and colour, he explores the continuum of intimacy by creating sensual images, objects and environments. Playful, touching and evocative, Beckly’s photographic artworks encompass bodily abstraction, material manipulation and site-responsive installations. Considering the social dynamics between the individual and the collective, Beckly’s practice looks at the ways in which living and loving intertwine with human nature.

Beckly holds an MFA from the University of Guelph and a BSc in Psychology from the University of Toronto. Beckly’s work has been featured in exhibitions at Daniel Faria Gallery, Toronto; Stride Gallery, Calgary; Remai Modern, Saskatoon; Eastern Edge Gallery, St. John’s; the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal
; and The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. Beckly’s images have been published in American Chordata, Carnation, and The Hart House Review. He lives and works in Tkaronto/Toronto.
